Post-punk meets gospel? You don’t need faith to believe, my friends, as we have the living proof with Atlanta quartet Algiers! Frontman Franklin James Fisher and company return to their favorite place to perform in DC, the Black Cat, on Thursday, March 12!
You can win a pair of tickets to see the show with Parklife DC.
On Jan. 17, Algiers released There Is No Year, the band’s third studio album, via Matador Records.
The mesmerizing visual for the sinuous, dub-inflected latest song “We Can’t Be Found,” which builds to a soaring, cascading chorus, propelled by powerhouse vocals, was directed by Ian Cone.
“I always feel the most successful music videos are the ones that are reflective and convey the mood of the song to the listener over everything else,” said Algiers guitarist Lee Tesche. “In this instance, we collaborated with the artist Lloyd Benjamin, trying to frame some of his sculpture work in a more abstracted way, referencing the urban dystopian cityscapes found in the German expressionist films of the 1930s. The result aspires to be somewhere in between the unsettling work of Darius Khondji and the set design of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari or Fritz Lang’s Metropolis.”
